healthcare professionals who sometimes forget the basics, such as washing hands after treating patients. the company that makes camera systems that watch over you says they're also watching out for you in terms of consumer protection. that's according to adam aronson, whose company, arrowsight, watches by remote camera half of the beef industry and meat processors such as osi.
